Good morning Mr. Rauno, its plant is spectacular, congratulations! I wanted to know if I can buy some seeds, I would be very gratefulBluesman said:
23.1.2010; the first pic ever taken of this "thing". I let it grow because I couldn´t identify what species this was. It took a long time before I even realized this could be a Capsicum. Even when the first flowers appeared (the plant was 6-7cm in height) I wasn´t able too tell what genus this could be.
I got the Candlelight seeds from a fellow hobbyist in Finland. 2014 I received 1000 seeds from the original 2009 batch and screened if there were more like this.
Now that I know what to look for the mutants were easy to mark.
The screening revealed that about 2% of the seeds were mutated. Or a bit more since the germination rate was poor; ~20-30%.
This screening was done with 5 year old seeds but the result is, at least I thein it is, only one pod contained the mutation.

If I may, how well does she set pods? Did you have to do anything special?
